Keeping with her navy theme from yesterday, Michelle Obama once again stepped out in a tailored navy coat this morning by Thom Browne. The First Lady arrived at St. John´s Episcopal Church across from the White House this morning with daughters Malia and Sasha, her mother Marian Robinson and the President, keeping pre-inaguguration tradition. According to NBC News´ White House Correspondent, Kristen Welker, Mrs Obama´s Thom Browne coat was made from fabric specifically developed to mimic the style of a man’s silk tie. Thom Browne is still best known as a menswear designer, and he often channels

Comments:
As much as it kills me, I have to admit this is one of the better things she has worn. You can´t see the dress so that opinion could easily change since the article mentions a "J Crew belt." Belts and the Mooch don´t always mean a good thing.

Oh, good, now I can live - just what you need to see when you get up in the morning and no, she does not look good. She will never look good to me and neither will her stupid husband.

She still looks like a shaven Chewbacca. No doubt American taxpayers paid for this outfit, too.

On this day of Mourning in America, otherwise knows as Obama´s inauguration day, I´m wearing a style of outerwear inspired by sheep. Otherwise knows as fleece.

It´s a must-miss event today and the TV stays off, lest their mugs accidentally appear on screen.

She finally looks smart and like a first lady should look, except for that ridiculous wig. She is too old for bangs for Pete´s sake. Yesterday she wore a cardigan for the swearing in ceremony.She obviously has aging issues and doesn´t want to grow up.

The kids have nice coats. Why wouldn´t they, they only have the unlimited funds of the American taxpayer. My kids are wearing their same coats from last year because here in the real world, the economy still stinks....unexpectedly!

The girls look very nice, and I like the coat, but in this case I think it needs a belt to break up all that pattern.

I agree with #5. I also like a lot of clothes that my 25 yr old would wear, but I have sense enough to not wear myself. And my daughter has really good taste in clothes.

The bangs do a great job of disguising her eyebrows that arch to give her a very intimidating look. I disagree with her being too old to wear bangs...I´m near 60 and wear them...and, always have. This is as nice as I´ve seen her look. The girls look nice, too,especially the older daughter.

With a belt on, she can breathe. In these photos she looks as though she is holding her breath.

There´s been a lot of serious purging going on during the last month or so and especially out in Hawaii. Or the excess aggage was sucked out. Whatever.

I wonder what Sasha would look like if she ever smiled or improved her posture. She appears to have a complete lack of confidence the way she always walks with her head down.

I´m reminded of that recent picture of the first family in DPRK. There is only one person in the photo who is smiling. The rest all look terrified as if someone behind the camera has an AK47 trained on them if they move out of line.

In all of the first family photos here there are only two smiling. The others are all waiting to get smacked down if they move out of line.

And I haven´t even looked at these pictures. I don´t want to spoil a perfectly nice Southern California day.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
